Cedar Rapids Building Imploded

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- Crews imploded the Family Practice Buildling at Mercy Medical Center in Cedar Rapids just after 8:00 a.m. Saturday morning.

Mercy said it will be the first implosion of this type in Cedar Rapids history. The contractor performing the implosion said the implosion sounded like several, rapid-fire shotgun blasts.

The Family Practice Building was damaged in last summer's flood.
